The statue has been moved recently (in the last 2 years) - it's now next to the new taxi rank at the eastern end of the airport plaza, sadly a much less prominent position than it's original location. Most passengers are unlikely to see it now.

No it was off the USS Enterprise in 1976 Kangaroo II. That is VC724 A4 and that is the only time in the 70s VC724 went to sea.
